millions of taxpayers dollars on this abusive effort. kennedy: many republicans wanted to see this. democrats mostly did this -- yea. look it is softball, and there were visual aids. >> this pile represents the e-mails that you sent, or received about libya, in 2011. from february through december of 2011. this pile, represents the e-mails you sent or received from early 2012 until the day of the attack. >> that is a much smaller pile. yeah. freedom caucus -- landed bod blows laying out the timelines between the private e-mails and public statement. >> that night, one hour after you told the american people,
you said to your family, two officers were kill today in benghazi by an al qaeda-like group. you tell the american people one thing, and you tell your fam lay laically a different story -- family a different story, in 24 hours you had a conversation with the egyptian prime minister you told him, we know the ash tathe attackin libya had nothinh the film. it was a planned attack not a protest. kennedy: i love mrs. hounds tooth and pearls, i wonder what she is looking at? or there is hillary clinton? >> when you were asked about bloomenthal, you said he was an old friend who september you unsolicited e-mails that you passed on in some instances because you wanted to hear from people outside, what you called bubble.
you often forwarded his e-mails but usually overly after you redacted out any offer so now body knew where the information was coming from. kennedy: scrub. sydney who? she came off as annoyed. and entitled. this might impede her coronation, are we any closer to answers on benghazi? not really. but every once in a while it is fun to check in on the circus and ride the carousel. travis bark ser here to talk -- barker is here to talk about survive a terrible train crash, living large, and playing drums. neil strow strauss to talk abouw he got over a sex adig. and a new jersey school is banning halloween, you know,

call, you talk about, what did you do before, and you did afterwards that is where the real cover-up is evident. the focus was incisive. the rest there is a lot of show pony going oshe looked very excited to be there. kennedy: she looked thrilled and very serious. how much damage did kevin mccarthy do to the proceedings with his one statement. >> it was a statement of fact like. the hearings happened, look at the poll numbers, they are happening, we'll have an infinite benghazi select committee. he did a lot of harm. but also this is the kinsey gaffe. >> you know right. >> i think that to doeny deny
political motivation would be ridiculous. kennedy: that was obvious when they were barking at each other, it like guys, she is sitting right here, why are you argue with each other, are we going have to a resolution? >> no, i am cynical on this whole thing, it is crazy, there is no way anything happens, she above all of this she knows it, i think it is great it is like trump, he said dumb things and goes up got polls, here face is here, the slightest bit of plausible deniability, i bet your polls go up because of this. kennedy: she is so well rehearsed on her answers. >> she is probably saying, if i can get through this this validation, i destroyed half my server. there is real there, there there was a real cover-up and a real scandal. but the problem, is if this is where it ends it could go to truth, she could laugh all the
way to the general election. >> i think she seemed strong when she was explaining this stuff to the lead up, explains to the members of congress about making trade offs, and -- cost benefit announcement, saying you know. i think you know, i am no hillary fan girl but i think she seems strong there like a ground up. with all of these squabbling congressmen. >> they were wrong to focus on that. you could argue judgment all day long. kennedy: that was her way out, she said in the end, i am still secretary of state, i get it there was 600 requests for security enhancements but at the end of the day she could say, i have 70 news peopl,000 people w- sempts,00sense70news people wh
me. >> do i think that the clintons defending themselves against allegation overalover the yearst people say, she did look good or this again. she is just lying again and she'll get a away with it. >> i do think it a useful presidential skill. kennedy: she might be president or ben carson might be, a new quinnipiac poll puts ben carson ahead of donald trump in iowa. carson had 28%, trump at 20%. is trump slowing? to you, pete. rick santorum won iowa in 2012,
huckabee won in 2008, 9 there. >> n glooneither one became president. >> the fact that a billionaire from new york city is flying in on a helicopter to iowa and leading in iowa, we would have laugh at that three months ago, it is not surprising. carson showed his staying power. can you know quote the bible chapter and verse. not a big surprise. kennedy: iowa ladies love ben carson, is this -- does this say something about donald trump losing his grasp or just ben carson know how to play the gals like a harp. >> i can't begin to speculate about the mental state of iowa ladies.
>> go ahead put yourself in their moccasins. >> i think if you told me anyone would be beating donald trump at any metric at this point in the race, i would be thank god for that but of all options i think in iowa you said the winner in iowa is not the national winner by and large. carson, he is winning their hearts and minds in iowa, saying he will intensify the war on drugs. kennedy: finally. >> i guess if that is what floats your boat. kennedy: he has his finger on the pulse of humanity. >> of iowa. the regional polls, i don't think they are accurate. and i don't think that donald will pull out of the race, because of iowa. kennedy: he, 8 points behind ben carson, in october of 2015, i am done! >> these polls every day we see a new poll, it is different from the last one, i can't computer

>> but -- how do we -- >> is he missing the point? >> monitor is a terrible word. that is like one of those things that a professional college -- >> like a hall monitor in junior high school, with polyester. >> a rat. call them a rat, schools are supposed to be a place of freethinking, that is gone. what is the criteria? when will judge what is correct, and what should be put out there? i think we're seeing this indoctriniation going on in a lot of colleges from the left, would it be better from the right? kennedy: no, if you have that free speech, and a religious campus with a more social conservative message, i assume that would be okay, in the name of religious liberty, but a place like berkeley, they are shutting down the idea. but that is not the point, that
is not to stop conversations and defund places that need money for -- cancer research. >> go after the speech codes, the things that restricting constitutional teach on campus emaking it impossible for anyone to say themes on campus, which should be free. >> i like trump's idea. kennedy: in wisconsin they are talking about banning the word thug, and placal correctness. >> with trump department of #edcasion wiledcation will be g. kennedy: educatorse cherish trump. the panel is coming back to discuss the grinch who ruined halloween. political correct netnesness hae crazy. >> but first traffic barker.
